            The location was excellent. I work in holborn and was easily able to walk in. Covent garden very close.

            The attitude of the staff when the boiler failed. Discourteous and off hand. Almost made me feel that it was my fault. No offer of complimentary breakfast, reduced rate. Not even an apology

            Very comfortable spacious room. Good comfortable beds. Good full english breakfast. Staff attentive but not obtrusive staff.

            I must say that our stay was during renavation work on the main reseption area, this did not detract from the comfort of our visit, but I did have some reservations about using the service lift..

            The friendliness of the staff - very unusual in London

            No - the hotel's public areas are under renovation so I have discounted this from my review. Once they are complete it will be superb.

            The staff were wonderful. I booked and had paid for a single room. All single room hotels in London are shoe boxes. The staff upgraded me to a double room and put me in a quiet part of the hotel because I was staying for 6 nights and needed somewhere quiet to work.

            The rooms are really nice, by London standards, especially the bathrooms. Renovation work in the lobby spoiled the first impression, but I knew that when I booked. They say it will be ready in November.
